    There isn't a lot of info yet but the area is in lockdown. I would absolutely avoid the area. Be safe guys.

    There are some pretty graphic pictures out there too so be careful when searching for pics if that's not something you'd want to see.

    I've never heard a specific weight but I thought the bombs were supposed to be pretty heavy? That bag doesn't look all that heavy (on the otherhand he appears to be a big guy, it's possible it just isn't that heavy for someone his size).
  11.  
    If they were in fact pressure cookers full of gunpowder and nails and shit, yeah they'd be pretty heavy. He is using his other arm to help support the weight though.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D
  12.  
    Also, they aren't just using the guy with the blue jacket on for reference, complex.com shows photos that imply 4chan was speculating about the gun with the white baseball hat on, next to the blue jacket guy in some of the later photos, and particularly speculating about whether he put his backpack down.

    Obviously they could be right about one but not the other, or neither, or both.

    Also, sunglasses, no sunglasses.

    Suspicious!

    ...

    Who knows? Maybe he put it down and was standing next to it because it was heavy, but without a bomb?

    ---

    Based on the earlier photograph using blue jacket guy as a reference point, isn't he a little close to potential bomber #1?

    ---

    Also, lots of people with backpacks, and duffle bags. Woman at bottom of circle also has a black backpack.

    ---

    Interesting though.

    Do they know what time the photos were taken?

    I really hope it's an angry white guy rather than an ethnic/social/whatever minority. My life will basically be unchanged if it's the former. Other people's lives will get worse if it's the latter.

    even if he's an american citizen (even if he's 100% white) i bet people will still be like "BUT HE VISITED (insert middle eastern country) ONCE."'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    from CBS news:
    CNN Correspondent John King, a Boston native, said authorities have a clear video image of a “dark-skinned male” placing a bag at the second bomb site outside of the Forum restaurant on Boylston Street and then leaving the area before that explosion.

    brace yourself for the racial slurs.'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    Lots of conflicting reports about if there actually is someone in custody.
    Part of me wonders if the BPD says there's no suspect to prevent any vigilante attack a la Jack Ruby, but anticipation breeds our worst fears. Keep an eye on the 'tube for any press conferences.

    I can't find anywhere that BPD says there is no suspect explicitly. They are saying no arrest, but that does not mean there is no one in custody, en route to questioning or suspected, am I right? Not being combative, just trying to figure out the linguistics all all these haphazard updates.

    from the fbi:

    "Contrary to widespread reporting, no arrest has been made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack," the FBI said in a released statement. "Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting."
    link

    i'm sure tyler is right in that there are suspects, but the arrest is the thing that matters i guess.somebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    Right, it could mean they're interviewing persons of interest, but haven't taken anyone into custody/made any arrests.

    bombs
    dead people

    SWAT teams in people's back yard
    sustained gun fire
    an explosion shown on the news that the newscasters didn't even comment on...
